Welding on cast iron is a typical process which requires extra precautions. Can you please tell me about a simple way to avoid cracks while welding on cast iron material?

I have learnt from some that its not advisable to weld cast iron and there are many standards which prohibit the welding of Cast iron.

That's not true. Cast iron welding needs preheating the object constantly and low heat welding electrodes used. You also need special welding transformer which works on low voltage to avoid cracks.
